Please read before installing or posting
Dualsim variants (a5dwg, a5dug) are supported, but not fully functional. It's not possible to make calls if you selected 2G as preferred network mode. This is a known issue so please do not post any report about that! I would suggest you to only use one sim card with the dualsim variants.

I forgot about that

Just redownload the rom (I uploaded a new zip)

Whoa, now I'm getting this. IMG_20141111_205408.jpg

Tried downloading twice in case I got a bad download, and I restored my backup just fine so I don't think any of my partitions are screwed up?

    Because I'm getting tons of messages everyday of people asking me where to download the rom.

    I started nightly builds again

    But I will keep this thread closed

    And stop send me messages

    I decided not to release any builds until christmas or CM nightlies are out

    Mate, please show some kind of interaction with your community.

    You never answer or almost and when you do, you often do it with very agressive words and disrespectful way of telling things.

    I'm flashing since years, and i 've never saw a talented dev like you with such an arrogant way of answering to people who are asking things.

    "Stop posting here". Who do you think you are to tell this to anybody? Show a bit of respect. You are not forced to fullfill requests of your users, but if you dont, at least respect them.
    Screenshots, even for a CM rom (yes we know to what it looks like), or at least a changelog from version to another could be a good thing.


    Think about this, and remember : as talented as you are, you remain a seventeen years old kid and have to learn respect for the future.

    No
    Even I am seventeen I am still doing this for free
    Be glad I share this with the " community"
    Do you really think care about the users?
    And why should I show respect?
    I am investigating my time to provide you all the latest updates I could also take down this here

    For now I going to stop the nightlies
